Children can either bring a packed lunch or have a hot school lunch, which costs £2.30 and is payable online or at the office.
School lunches must be paid for on a Monday for the week. Please send your money into school in a sealed , named envelope.
Since September 2014 ALL Keystage 1 children (years R, 1 & 2) are offered school lunch FREE OF CHARGE and we would encourage parents to take advantage of this..
We ask parents not to include nuts or nut related products (e.g. peanut butter) in lunchboxes as they pose potential risks to health with a number of children in school having serious nut allergies.
Children are provided with water at lunchtime
Please note that fizzy drinks, thermos flasks and glass bottles or containers of any kind are not allowed in school.
School lunch menus are available at the following link: My School Lunch
Food for Hampshire's school meals continues to be locally sourced wherever possible and Hampshire County Council is committed to the healthy agenda and to providing high quality food to Hampshire's children.
